Are you ready to be engaged, but don’t have any idea how to bring this topic up?
Do you think you’re ready for marriage and want to see where his head is at?
A man doesn’t usually think about a proposal when his head isn’t in the commitment stage. I don’t mean commitment as in continuing your relationship. I mean commitment as in life long – forever. Remember, he won’t propose unless he’s ready, and you shouldn’t rush him into something he’s not sure of. However, if you’ve both talked about marriage and you both know you’re each others “one”, then there are subtle hints you can drop.
If you’re ready to make that commitment and want him to do the same, check out these tips to get him to propose.
Be wife material. Cook him dinner or do his laundry. These are things he looks for in a wife. It’s not a must, but it definitely is a bonus. Do things that a wife would do for her husband. When he’s sick, make him soup and take care of him. Help him talk out work problems. Go home to his family for holidays. When you act like a wife, it’ll trigger thoughts of marriage on his mind.
Talk about it. If you’re a couple and you feel like you’re ready to get engaged, go ahead and talk to him about it. If you’re not comfortable talking about marriage, then both you of definitely aren’t ready to get engaged. Once you’re comfortable talking about the future of your relationship, you’ll know that he may be ready to propose.
Remind him why he fell in love with you. Sometimes men forget the person they fell in love with. You both change along with things around you, but sometimes all it takes is for you to remind him of why he fell in love with you. Take some time, just the two of you, to reconnect those feelings of why you love each other. Go on a weekend cabin trip or go see a band that reminds you of your relationship. All you need is to ignite that memory of you both falling in love.
Make his family love you. A man’s not going to marry a woman who doesn’t get along with his family. This is a big deal, and you want to make sure his family falls for you just like he did. Help his mom cook, and talk about the news with his dad. Get to know his brothers and/or sisters if he has any. Make a note to try out things his family loves. For example, if they’re big golfers, learn to golf so you can spend more time with them. When they see you making an effort, it shows you truly care about their son. They’ll be happy to encourage their son to propose to you.
Let him know he can lose you. A man will tie you down in a heartbeat if he thinks there’s a chance of losing you. If you really want him to commit, tell him that you understand he needs time but you also need to take care of yourself. Then take time to be with yourself for a bit. He’ll snap back to reality right away, and make a decision.
Be patient. Patience is a virtue, especially for a woman waiting for a proposal. It may drive you mad, but make sure not to nag or bug him about it. He’ll want it to be a surprise, and the last thing you want to do is ruin that for you both. Good things come to those who wait. Who knows, maybe the longer you wait, the bigger the rock!
There’s no real quick or efficient way to get your man to propose. Sure, you can maybe speed up the process but only if he’s already thinking about marriage. Getting your man to propose to you when you know he isn’t ready just won’t end well. However, if you know he’s the one and you’ve both talked about marriage and marrying each other, then you can let him know that you’re ready. Be patient and remember to give him his time to be ready.
